Jane Lynch kicked off today's Emmy Awards with a song and dance routine that included cameos from some of TV's most popular stars. Early supporting honours in a comedy went to small screen couple Modern Family's Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell, who actually beat out three of his male co-stars! Ty then made a memorable acceptance speech about his late father. Charlie Sheen made a controversial appearance to present outstanding lead actor in a comedy series with some of his old competitors. While some were worried about what he'd say in relation to his departure from Two and a Half Men, Charlie was polite and respectful. He said, "From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together, and I know you will continue to make great television." Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory ended up the winner, while Mike and Molly's Melissa McCarthy won in the corresponding female category. Her rivals like Amy Poehler and Tina Fey all gathered together onstage before the victor was announced, and it was a sweet moment of support among peers.
The opening number of an awards show is one of the things most people look forward to. This year’s Emmy Awards host Jane Lynch tapped into her musical Glee background to bring together lots of your favourite shows in one big song-and-dance number. After learning that all the shows are housed in one building, she moves between the rooms and we get cameos from the casts of The Big Bang Theory, Mad Men and more. Jane also sings about how things only occur in the wonderful world of TV — such as how “high school students look roughly 24” and how “patients are cured in an hour by doctors who work once a week.” We’ve heard it all before — there are only so many ways you can parody TV! — but Jane definitely brought a new energy to the segment. Watch the Emmys opening number below.

See how the Gleeks made their entrance on the red carpet — Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss and more!
At today's Emmys, more than a few celebs chose to up their star power with a shimmering red-carpet gown. It was all about gorgeous gowns that glowed from metallic sequins and beads. Think less disco ball and more delicate with metallic embroidery like Jennifer Carpenter's beautiful sparkly gown, Christina Hendricks's femme Johanna Johansson confection, or Taraji P. Henson's slinky, liquid gold and silver Blumarine gown. And we love the way they wear it — opting for minimal accoutrements that showcase the gowns and their own natural glow. See who else shone...
The glamorous hairstyles of the '30s and '40s have been having a moment for a while now, but they made a particularly strong showing at the 2011 Emmy Awards today. From Julianna Margulies' rolled wave to Dianna Agron and Evan Rachel Wood's '30s-style swoop, it looks like it's time to dig out those hot rollers and take your tresses back in time. Do you like the look?
